alright so ive been wanting to level off the front end of my truck and i just blew my entire wad on tires, rims, exhaust, stereo system, trans service.

someone mentioned to me that hockey pucks could be used as coil spacers. i NEVER off-road unless its driving out in the woods to go fishing at my secret spot on the lake. would hockey pucks honestly work for non-off roaders?

I can't tell if this is a serious question or not...

I mean... it seems like you're being sincere... but... you surely can't be serious?


Did you even try searching the words "hockey pucks" and reading one of the numerous threads where people mention them as a complete joke, or any of the other threads where people ask the same exact thing as you're asking, and everyone calls them or their friend that mentioned it an idiot?

they might work on coiled jeeps and such if the pucks were a bigger diameter but our springs are a much bigger diameter and are bolted to the upper spring mount instead of just being set in place, it wouldn't work.

Please don't even suggest that it would be adequate on any vehicle. :twak

yes i was being serious in asking the question but i had very high doubts in my mind about it. ive heard of people using 2x4's as body lifts and such but i just wasnt sure about hockey pucks as coil spacers.

Go get yourself a set of lower coil mounts off of a 4x2 truck, they're 1" taller than the 4x4 mounts and drop right in place.

I never said hockey pucks would be adequate, but coil spacers do quite well on coil jeeps for a cheap 1 or 2" lift

Jeffsbroncograveyard.com sells steel 1/4" spacers you can stack one or 2 for a lil lift. Ebay has spacers w/ stud extenders but I'd save for some leveling coils. Thats what I'm running along w/ a 1/2" spacer w/ a bad alignment problem. 2 1/2" lift is not good for stock brackets LOL. I'm fixing it next week.

As for spacers on a Jeep I'm running 2" poly spacers and they work good on it but Jeeps are about the only vehicle that plastic/rubber spacers are OK on.

4x2 spacers are 1 3/4" from base to coil mount and 4x4 spacers are around 7/8".

And i don't know why you haven't heard it before. Between FSB, FTE, and pirate every thread that comes up about needing 1" of lift I recommend the 4x2 spacer and a washer.

Stock stud is long enough and everything.
